Wayne Rooney In Line To Make Massive England Return This Month

Wayne Rooney is poised to make a shock return to the England national team later this month, according to widespread media reports.

England's all-time top scorer called time on his international career in August 2017 after winning 119 caps and scoring 53 goals for his country.

But there are rumours that the former Manchester United striker is in line to return to the Three Lions fold as a one-off in the friendly clash with USA at Wembley on November 15.

It's said the 33-year old is not only to be included in Gareth Southgate's squad, he is also set to pull on the captain's armband again for what would be his 120th cap.

This will serve as Rooney's proper farewell to honour his incredible career as an England player, while the hope from the FA is that it will also raise more than £500,000 for a number of children's charities, including the NSPCC.

News of a recall for Rooney comes after he single-handedly turned D.C United's season around following his move across the pond.

Prior to his arrival, the club were lurched at the bottom of the Eastern Conference table, winning just three games out of 17.

But then the Everton youth product bagged 12 goals and seven assists to help steer the side up the table to the point where the eventually reached the play-offs, before losing to Columbus Crew on penalties - with Rooney seeing his spot-kick saved in the shoot-out.
